Hedge End Screwfix store manager is best in the UK

Luke Bowie, Store Manager at the Screwfix store in Hedge End is celebrating after scooping one of the company’s highest awards and being named Screwfix Store Manager of the Year 2016. Luke beat over 500 managers from across the UK to take the coveted title.

Nominated by his Area Manager John Anderson, Luke went on to impress the judges in every round to become a finalist alongside two other managers. John commented: “Earlier this year, Luke achieved great results while he was Store Manager of the Parkstone Screwfix store in Poole, Dorset where he also developed three members of his team, resulting in promotions. Since being at Hedge End Luke has done a fantastic job running a very high profile store, engaging his team and with his perseverance and intervention, has delivered great customer service to his customers. He’s always enthusiastic and motivated and is infectious and visible to the rest of the Hedge End team, and to our customers.”

Luke Bowie, Store Manager at Hedge End Hampshire commented: “It’s a great honour to win ‘Store Manager of the Year’ I couldn’t have done this without my teams behind me who work so hard and are incredibly dedicated to their roles. They help set an excellent example to other Screwfix stores and employees.”

“I started at Screwfix 9 years ago as a Service Assistant and have worked my way up to Store Manager. I pride myself in helping create engaging staff who always want to do their best and are committed to delivering great customer service. The best advice I could give to any Manager is look after your team and they will look after you.”
